Emergency Shelter Grant Funding Announced

Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) announces the 2011 Balance of State Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) recipients from the April 11, 2011, application round.  Forty-seven applicants will receive a total of $1,390,609 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to assist the homeless in Kentucky.

Many nonprofits and local governments across Kentucky use ESG funds to provide necessary services to help persons who are homeless by getting them back into housing and to help families stay in their homes thereby preventing homelessness.  Last year, it was reported that over 15,000 persons were served through the ESG program in the Balance of State (all counties except Fayette and Jefferson).

For more information about KHC’s ESG program, visit KHC’s Web site, under Specialized Housing, Programs, Emergency Shelter Grant.  You may also contact Jill House toll-free in Kentucky at (800) 633-8896 or (502) 564-7630, extension 705; TTY 711; or e-mail jhouse@kyhousing.org.
